The Cape Cod Fisheries Trust works to protect the future of Cape Cod’s historic fishing industry by purchasing commercial permits in order to secure additional fishing opportunities for the struggling local fleet. Self-employed Cape Cod fishermen then lease these opportunities from the Trust and agree to harvest the catch with small boats and traditional gear.
This innovative program has made great strides under strong leadership and with the continued support of fishermen, citizens of Cape Cod and philanthropic foundations.
The Cape Cod Fisheries Trust is a unique collaboration between CCCHFA and the Community Development Partnership.
Kept boats on the water and money in our fishermen’s pockets by leasing over 200,000 lbs of dayboat scallops and 825,000 lbs of groundfish quota to Cape Cod fishermen in 2011
